Missed the Awards

What?! I missed the Food Network Awards, you ask?

Well... yes I did. I was on an aeroplane all day yesterday (which happens to be my same excuse for missing them when they were first taped).

I was in Seattle this past weekend. Needed to get a little pacific northwestness into me. Next stop is California. It's cold here on the east coast, you know.

ANYhow... perhaps it's better I avoid this show altogether? I've already missed out twice, so that's surely a sign.

It was such a "snooze-ola" of a show. I thought it would be so much more entertaining. Instead, all of the presenters (except Paula and Alton) looked ill at ease and out of their element. ZZZZZZZZ.

I agree, it was awful. Painful to watch. You missed nothing worth noting.
